CITY OF HEROES

A local boy who became a soldier
He grew up big, but he didn't grow much older
Then there's the other one
He may be younger but if you saw the things he's done
You'd see the qualities you've always looked for

And you'd include him in the masterplan

That was cooked up by the doctor with time on his hands

They avenge us, defend us, they keep us safe
More so than we know
From the tower or down in the streets below
They protect us and they serve

For every neighbourhood deserves its own heroes

Sticks and stones could really harm me

But not the hooded one-man army
Then there's the private eye
She still fights despite her messy private life
Even billionaires have family drama
And even devils can be heaven-sent

When they'd rather deal in karma than punishment

 

They defend us, avenge us, they keep us safe
More so than we know
From the tower or down in the streets below
They protect us and they serve

For every neighbourhood deserves its own heroes

They avenge us, defend us, they keep us safe
More so than we know
From the tower or down in the streets below
They protect us and they serve

For every neighbourhood deserves its own heroes
